1) Briefly reflect on the lessons learnt from each exercise
a. Reflective listening
In this activity we partnered up and switched roles as an interviewer and interviewee. I found that I am more comfortable as an interviewer.
b. Defamiliarisation of everyday reality
This exercise needed imagination and relive the everyday scenario from outsiders perspective. Marking the parts on our body that are affected during the situation is great way to be aware state of your body which we probably do not notice in everyday situations.
c. Empathic modelling
In this exercise we did two activities. First we wrapped the phone camera with cling wrap to get blurry vision and next we wrapped our glasses and used them to walk the corridor. It gave us a hands on experience in understanding the struggles of people with imperfect vision.
2) Complement your reflections with photographs of the process
3) Include a scanned copy of your defamiliarisation forms (public transport) Post your reflection to the blog and add category “Blog Reflection”
